A marauder is an enemy featured in Borderlands 2. They typically fill the role of a basic bandit infantry unit equipped with small arms.
Marauder - Basic marauders rarely use shields, therefore making incendiary weapons very effective against them. They mainly carry pistols which will occasionally have an Elemental Damage effect. Sometimes, a marauder will pull out a knife and charge in close for a melee attack, similar to a psycho. They wear standard bandit clothing, albeit with minor differences based upon which clan they are from. Some wear sheets on their heads instead of the usual bandit masks.
- Marauders have different names for each difficulty level:
Killer Marauder - A stronger variant of the Marauder that is distinguished by the twin spikes above his mask and an increased self-preservation instinct. These marauders carry rifles, SMGs and sometimes shotguns. They are often (but not always) equipped with shields, so shock element weapons will be more effective at taking them down. Once their shields have been depleted, incendiary weapons are exceptionally effective.
- Killer Marauders have different names for each difficulty level:
Crazed Marauder - An even tougher variant with a physical appearance similar to that of a psycho. They usually wear shields and carry SMGs. Occasionally, they pull out a knife and charge in close to perform a melee strike, similar to that of a psycho. They are also very evasive and often dive roll and zig-zag their way out of the path of oncoming bullets. Incendiary weapons are highly effective against them.
These marauders are exclusive to the Bloodshot bandit clan, and will reside in Bloodshot-occupied areas, notably in their stronghold, ramparts, as well as in Southpaw Steam & Power and parts of the Three Horns valley and divide.
- Crazed Marauders have different names for each difficulty level:
Elite Marauder - The strongest non-Badass variant of the Marauder. These marauders are almost always equipped with a shield and often carry a shotgun and can lob grenades. They are very tough and evasive.
- Elite Marauders have different names for each difficulty level:
Scavenger - A Marauder variant that only appears in True Vault Hunter Mode. They can pick up dropped items, much like Rats. Upon dying, they will also drop everything they picked up.
Scavengers' names stay the same in TVHM and above.
Hodunk Grunt - This type of marauder can vary in appearance and fights for the Hodunk clan in the Clan War mission line. They appear during Clan War: Trailer Trashing and Clan War: Zafords vs. Hodunks. While not immediately obvious as a marauder, this unit type contributes to the "Marauder? I Hardly Knew 'Er" challenge when killed.
Hodunk Grunts' names stay the same throughout all difficulties.
Zaford Grunt - This type of marauder can vary in appearance and fights for the Zaford clan in the Clan War mission line. They appear during Clan War: Wakey Wakey and Clan War: Zafords vs. Hodunks. While not immediately obvious as a marauder, this unit type contributes to the "Marauder? I Hardly Knew 'Er" challenge when killed.
Zaford Grunts' names stay the same throughout all difficulties.
Badass Marauder - Marauders that wear pieces of old Crimson Lance armor, and are much tougher than standard Marauders, however they follow like tactics of their weaker counterparts and are very weak to headshots. They are much more likely to drop a higher tier weapon than a normal Marauder. In True Vault Hunter Mode they appear often equipped with Nova Shields.
